President Mohammadu Buhari on Friday suspended the Chief Justice of Nigeria Walter Onnoghen following an interim order by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in favour of the Federal Government.
Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed has been appointed as the acting Chief Justice by Buhari. However, the country’s judiciary body frowned to this, and demand an immediate reversal of Onnoghen’ suspension.
Ovation boss Dele Momodu, has described this action by the president as “war against opposition”. He said on twitter the ‘noise on the war against corruption should be changed to ‘war against opposition.’
He said, “So every allegation should lead to resignation? What a smart way of eliminating perceived enemies; one of the reasons I respect SARAKI who defended himself like a man and shamed his tormentors.
“Walahi, the noise about war against corruption should be changed urgently to war against opposition.
“And protection of friends of ruling saints.”
